This recipe for Beef Stock is made in the slow cooker/crockpot. It makes a delicious base to soups, a quick gravy or even just to mix in with mashed potatoes. Easier than you think to make, with the most delicious results.
I prefer to make my own stock. I’ve previously made chicken stock and vegetable stock and they both have so much more flavor and a lot less sodium than store bought. Any stock that is made with bones, is good for you. Using bone broth in recipes is all the rage right now because of the collagen that is extracted from the bones when cooking.
Stock is cooked low and slow using bones that develop more flavor, broth is cooked with with just meat and vegetables.
When I was getting ready to buy the ingredients, I was wondering where I was going to find beef bones. I got very happy because my local grocery store carries beef marrow bones. To the average person this is not exciting, but for a stock making fan like me, it’s like Culinary Christmas.
